Checklist for Choosing a Rhinoplasty Surgeon–
Board certification is an important first consideration in choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon. However, it alone does not give a full picture of a rhinoplasty surgeon’s technical and artistic skill, experience, ongoing educational enrichment, reputation and personal integrity.
While there is no completely foolproof way to assess whether a particular rhinoplasty surgeon is the one for you, there are a number of factors to consider, and when put together with proper board certification, you can get a fairly complete picture as to a surgeon’s competence and expertise.
If you are considering rhinoplasty surgery, use this handy checklist to help assess the surgeon you are considering:
Checklist of Factors to Consider in a Rhinoplasty Surgeon
☐ Board certification in plastic surgery indicating the surgeon has surpassed the stringent examination requirements for plastic surgery
☐ A good reputation in the medical community and among former patients, and a willingness to provide references
☐ Extensive experience – ideally a surgeon would perform 100+ rhinoplasty procedures per year.
☐ No history of disciplinary procedures or malpractice claims against the surgeon
☐ Availability of a variety of “before” and “after” photographs of satisfied patients whose procedure your surgeon personally performed
☐ Recognition of your surgeon’s peers, which might include published papers, awards, lecturing at professional seminars, etc.
☐ Specialization in the type of procedure you are considering – has performed hundreds of rhinoplasties
☐ Having good rapport and communication with patients; a surgeon who takes plenty of time to answer your questions, give clear instructions and allay your concerns
☐ Being admitted to practice at one or more highly rated hospitals, and performs procedures at an accredited surgical facility.
The decision to have rhinoplasty surgery is extremely personal. You want to be completely comfortable with the procedure itself, and more importantly, with the surgeon who will perform it. Not only are you placing your appearance in their hands, you are also putting your life in his or her hands.
No matter how outstanding a surgeon’s qualifications are, if you are not comfortable with him or her, you should look for someone who is completely the right fit.
